Injury Quotations

If an injury has to be done to a man it should be so severe that his vengeance need not be feared.
Niccolo Machiavelli

The best revenge is to be unlike him who performed the injury.
Marcus Aurelius

In England, it's a rare thing to see a player smoking but, all in all, I prefer that to an alcoholic. The relationship with alcohol is a real problem in English football and, in the short term, it's much more harmful to a sportsman. It weakens the body, which becomes more susceptible to injury.
Alex Ferguson

Forget like a child any injury done by somebody immediately. Never keep it in the heart. It kindles hatred.
Swami Sivananda

This is part of the involuntary bargain we make with the world just by being alive. We get to experiences the splendor of nature, the beauty of art, the balm of love and the sheer joy of existence, always with the knowledge that illness, injury, natural disaster, or pure evil can end it in an instant for ourselves or someone we love.
Jeff Greenfield
